|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||La Parde de Haut-Bailly|
92-94. Barrel Sample. This wine has a fine, dense texture that is impressive with its smooth velvet character. The tannins are dark, solid and show a dry side to balance the beautiful juicy fruit. Although this is a second wine, it does have the structure of a wine more senior than that.
Solid, with bramble-edged grip and good drive to the mix of plum, red currant and raspberry coulis flavors, lined with a bright iron streak and backed by a racy savory edge on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2027. 5,000 cases made.
The 2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly has quite a high-toned bouquet with blueberry and cassis. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, a hint of graphite with ample blackberry and blueberry. This is a structured La Parde de Haut-Bailly, grippy and slightly chalky with a precise finish. This comes recommended. Drink Date: 2019-2030.
